Best pizza in Manhattan similar to Lillian Pizza in Forest Hills?

Lillian is probably the best pizza place I've been to in NYC. However, Forest Hills is too far from where I live right now (Chinatown) to get a slice every other day... or more frequently.

Any pizza in the area; hell, any pizza in Manhattan that's just as good or better, in a similar style? I don't really care about price.

My other favorite pizza place is Salvatore's in Port Washington.

As for a description of these slices: I don't know much pizza language, so forgive me here, but I do know that the pizza has a thin, crispy crust. Crispy is important. Also, good cheese to sauce balance, not too oily, and the sauce isn't too sweet either. "Similar to what I had when I was in Italy, except with a slightly thicker crust" is what I would call it. Hope this helps.

Salvatore's,
